Sierra Nevada Single Hop Mosaic Double IPA

Brewery: Sierra Nevada Brewing Company
Country: USA
ABV: 8%
Style: American Double IPA
Other Notes: 70 IBUs. Single Hop Pack

Brewer Description: (from box) Each hop varietal has its own distinct flavor and aroma, which our brewers use in various combinations to create different flavors in our beers. Sometimes, though, we prefer to strip away those layers and let the bold flavor of an individual hop shine through. Discover the flavors of these unique single hops in this all-new pack of four hop-heavy beers.

Intro: A 12 fl. oz. can, packaged on 5th September 2018. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A clear golden orange colour with a big three finger white head that had good retention and left lots of nice sticky lacing.
Aroma: Citrusy mandarin peel, orange rind, pine, melon, pineapple and a touch of papaya.
Taste: Light sweetness, melon, papaya, pineapple, mixed berries, light caramel, citrus rind and a lasting moderate bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: My favourite of the four from the Single Hop Pack and worth trying if you like Mosaic. A good easy drinking DIPA.
